High Risk Employees

Focus On Your Biggest Insider Data Security Risks

Employees that are flight risks, users with privileged access and those with performance concerns are more likely to put data at risk. Focusing your data protection on high risk employees is a powerful strategy to reduce the risk of cyber-attacks, data breaches and industrial espionage

5 examples of high risk employees

1. Employees with privileged access

Privileged accounts can be misused by users or taken over by inside actors for data exfiltration purposes.

2. Remote workers

When remote workers are off-network, their file access and data activities are often invisible to security teams — and remote work policies are often difficult to enforce without the right tools.

3. Disgruntled employees

Whether they commit intentional sabotage or steal intellectual property, current or former dissatisfied employees are among the costliest threats to an organization. 

4. Negligent employees

If it’s accidentally sharing files or falling for phishing scams, negligent employees (especially those with privileged access) can have a catastrophic impact. 

5. Contracted employees

Temporary staff, as well as third party vendors, are often onboarded quickly using their own devices and without proper training procedures. This can increase the risk of data leaks. 


6 Unusual Data Behaviors That Indicate Insider Threat
